Younger guy dating older men
Anyone who’s been in a serious long-term relationship knows the journey isn’t without certain challenges, and when you’re dating an older man—we’re talking a decade or more—things can get even trickier.
I know this firsthand, as I’m 25 years old, and I’ve been dating an older guy nearly 15 years my senior for almost four years.
Now, I’m not saying these are conscious reasons why dating a man quite a bit older—there have been several moments when I’ve thought that going out with someone closer to my age would be much simpler.

On behalf of other younger men, with humility and boldness, we plead with our older brothers for five things. Young men need to hear, “Everything’s going to be okay.” Most days we’re pretty sure our lives are an utter failure, a disaster zone even. You pray, “From my youth you have taught me,” and, “Even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come” (Psalm –18).
Young men are often asking of older men, “Do you care about me? ” We can watch You Tube videos for advice, wisdom, and inspiration for life’s complexities. Now, for every gray hair, we want one story of God’s faithfulness, one lesson from years of learning God and his world. Was there a time when you had that same life experience? We need to hear, “God is faithful in that situation, because I’ve seen it — I have involved in this tragic world — in a young man’s tragic life — because sometimes we’re not so sure.
It can be tough when you and your older partner can’t share childhood commonalities (dude’s never read a book!?
), but the benefits can certainly outweigh those little things.
